>*** PERSONAL OPINION ALERT ***
Yesterday six soldiers made their final journey home to the UK from Afghanistan. One was just 18, another was a TA volunteer. As I watched footage of the six funeral cars carrying their coffins, I couldn’t find the words to express how I felt.
On Remembrance Sunday one of the guests of honour at the Cenotaph was a young soldier who’d lost both legs and an arm. This should not be happening.
Today, on Armistice Day, at 11am we pause for 2 minutes silence. Today the only words I can find are: Bring the rest of them home before more are killed or maimed.
Bring them home.
